New Book Pulls Back Curtain On U.S. War on Terror

Explosive New Book Pulls Back Curtain on U.S. War on Terror

Houston, TX, USA, October 8, 2008 -- International best-selling author Steve Alten has written thrillers about 70-foot prehistoric Great White Sharks (MEG), the Loch Ness Monster (The LOCH) and the 2012 Mayan Doomsday Prophecy (DOMAIN), but his latest book is the most frightening of all.

Alten says "The Shell Game reveals the truth about the attacks of September 11th, 2001, a neoconservative agenda to secure oil reserves in Iraq and Iran, and an impending 9/11 false flag event that (to quote President George W. Bush) will make the last 9/11 pale in comparison." Alten told us that The Shell Game is written in the guise of a cautionary thriller, and that he heavily researched and tapped into sources in the military, the oil industry, and foreign intelligence.

The book provides frightening details about Peak Oil and shows how ill-prepared the industrial world is for the potential catastrophe that lies ahead. The author pulls no punches, naming names while keeping the reader turning pages. Says Alten, "The Bush Administration knew well in advance that the attacks were coming, there were at least a dozen warnings from foreign intelligence agencies. Five FBI investigations targeting the hijackers taking flight lessons would have prevented 9/11...only Dave Frasca, head of the FBI's Radical Fundamentalist Unit, purposely shut down the investigations...and was later promoted. On the morning of September 11th, the U.S. Government was running FIVE separate wargame exercises, all under the direction of Vice President Dick Cheney, that purposely diverted our jet fighters out of the Northeast Air Defense Sector where the hijackings occurred, preventing the possibility of interception."

Alten warns, "The attacks of September 11th were all about oil. While alternative energy has become a theme of the 2008 Presidential campaign, neither candidate has been forthcoming of what really awaits us if we do not make radical energy infrastructure changes now. World oil levels peaked in 2005. Within the next decade our dependence on fossil fuels will lead to a crisis that will make the current problems on Wall Street seem like good times. Simply put, when the oil stops flowing, a lot of people will be going hungry, the economy will collapse, and there will be martial law. The Shell Game is a warning from experts, intended to open the public's eyes as to what is really happening, written as a real-life thriller to make the truth easier to comprehend."

NOTE: The stress associated with writing The Shell Game was so great on Steve Alten that he was diagnosed with Parkinson Disease three months after completing the book. (He is only 49.) Foreign publishing rights for The Shell Game will be offered at the Frankfurt Book Fair, October 15th -19th by Alten's literary agent, Danny Baror of Baror International.
